I'm installing a KT Moto led headlight assembly and I'm having issues. I've contacted the company and have determined the issue isn't in their end (relay harness or headlight)

The issue I'm having is when I turn on the bike, no lights come on until I turn in the turn indicator (turning the bright in and off does nothing) as soon as the turn indicator comes on everything works perfectly.

The manufacturer suggested that I might have too low of power at the connector. When I use a test light on either side (hi or low) I get nothing. The fuse is still good according to my test light.

Does any one have suggestions where I might troubleshoot next?

Here is the link of the video, I sent to the manufacturer, showing my issue (the fairings are just bolted up so I could plug the turn indicator in, hence the gap)

Are you saying that you installed a new headlight kit and it doesn't come on until you turn on your blinker? I'm a little tired from a very long work week but that's what it sounds like you said!

Correct. The stock headlights worked fine before I started the install, but once I started testing with the test light I could never get it to light up when I check the headlight connections (either hi/low). When I test the turn signal and the city light the test light shows power (until I stuck the wire from the headlight kit into the city light connector and blew a fuse)

Anytime you blow a fuse you have a short to ground what are you tied to positives together or you have a bad component. so I agree with the last poster definitely wiring problem ? you better get the monkeys out of that wiring and then you'll have a good result??????

The relay makes an audible beep when plugged in with the ignition in the "on" position. So I imagine the relay is fine.

All fuses (including the main fuse) have been checked and are fine.

When I first started this project, I noticed the turn signals (in the headlight) wouldn't flash unless the side turn signals were plugged in. Which makes sense, since that is completing the circuit to that wire. Is there anything like that for the headlights? The last time they worked was before I disassembled the bike.
